lard ar$e e-series

Who the hell said EA's are light!?!?!?!? 1780 kg's (with driver) is far from light!!!

Seriously though, Dave (Thanatos (Thantos )) and I went to weigh our cars at the local public weigh bridge today for a laugh. Our estimates were waaay off. Dave's car weighed in at 1660kg (with dave). A far cry from the 1520kg that he guestimated. My car weighed in at 1780, while i was thinking it would be closer to 1620kg Both cars were weighed in full street trim with full tanks of petrol, stereo's installed and with drivers (although dave did take his toolbox out ).

So whoever said ea's are light is either smoking crack or our sound deadening and stereo's make a huge difference

Re: lard ar$e e-series

Its a vicious rumour, isn't it!
I've had my EL Fairmont on a weigh bridge so I can use the the G Tech in it accurately and with me in and 1/2 a tank of fuel it came in at 1710kg. Heavy pig.

1998 EL Fairmont 5.0 V8.

Yes, but as soon as you step out of the car the weight goes down to 1400.
